Trailer For DC’s Superman Prequel Series ‘Krypton’ Released

DC’s TV Universe has had its ups and downs. Arrow has been a solid hit for several seasons now. The Flash has been somewhat less beloved. Supergirl is very polarizing, with viewers either loving it or thinking it’s garbage. Where will their next entry fall on this spectrum? Only time will tell, but this sneak peek may help a bit.Premiering March 21 on the Syfy network, Krypton delves into the history of Superman.

Going back two generations, we meet Kal-El’s grandfather and Jor-El’s father, Seyg-El. It will chronicle his quest to restore honor to the House of El, before the doomed planet’s eventual destruction.

Check out the trailer here, as well as some images from the set!
